When I first started this blog, I wrote fast and furious, frantic and ferocious, venting and complaining and ranting, hashing over the joys (ahem) of dealing with a jealous, self-absorbed womb-for-rent who refused to let go of a man who considers her, at best, as part of the forgotten trash on the curb. It seemed like there were a million bloggers back then, and we read each other’s daily diatribes and commented our support, until it felt like these people should be on my Christmas card list.
That was 9 years ago. I wrote the first words on Smirking Cat on October 26, 2007. That seems like a hundred years ago! The more things change, the more they stay the same. So much has happened since then, yet one constant through it all, like a shining beacon of mental imbalance, is Crow acting like a deranged bitch. Well, give her points for being consistent, eh?
I don’t know if the blogging trend has just tapered, or if I am just quite terrible at keeping in touch. Probably a mix of both. I don’t know where most of the bloggers went who used to comment here, and most of their links are broken or their blogs haven’t been updated for years. I wonder where they are and how they are doing. It would be nice to hear from some of them, if they ever happen to wander this way again.
I’ve been terribly inconsistent writing here, for a lot of reasons, so I’m not surprised to have lost that connection with other writers. My blog started as one thing and has gradually shifted to another, and I’m cool with that. It is what I need it to be, for where I am. I miss the online community and would like to build that back up again, if it’s still there to come back to. If not, I will just view my blog as a place to record my random thoughts and opinions (of which I have many) and hope that it may entertain someone else along the way.
